    Well I know almost nothing about WMF or EMF.  The code
for the parser however basically just 3 classes (although they
are a bit large).  About your particular issue looking at the
code org.apache.batik.transcoder.wmf.tosvg.WMFRecordStore:126
it seems to do exceedingly little with the 'Aldus Placable Metadata'
data (it appears to read and discard essentially all of it -
it isn't clear if the next group of reads is also part of
the Aldus data).  So this might be trivial, at the least it
is probably worth your taking a closer look if you know
something about WMF/EMF.
